Hawks Injury Report: Anthony Morrow has missed the past 7 games, and it looks like he'll miss another game as he didn't participate in the team's shootaround.

Jazz Injury Report: Marvin Williams (knee) and Mo Williams (thumb) are out. Raja Bell is also not with the team.

Hawks Player(s) to watch: Jeff Teague's struggles continue to be spotlighted as the Hawks continue to struggle. In the past four games, Teague has only scored in double figures once, shooting a combined 13 for 37 from the field. Despite his struggles, Larry Drew has continued to ride him, letting Teague play 32+ minutes in 8 of the past 9 games, including three 40+ minute games in the past five games.

Jazz Player(s) to watch: The Jazz big man trio of Derrick Favors, Al Jefferson, and Paul Millsap is pretty intimidating. Their combination of size, low post game, and perimeter ability makes it hard for opposing teams to game plan for them. In Wednesday's game against the Bobcats, the trio combined for 55 points in 24 for 32 shooting. Oh yeah, he's not playing...but watch out for what kind of suit Marvin Williams will wear in his return debut to Atlanta.
